In It to Win It

Leading like Jesus isn’t for leaders who are looking for a quick fix. Following Jesus as our leader requires intentionality and effort, in short, perseverance. Remembering our motivation and keeping our eyes on the goal is vital when times get tough. What is your reason for wanting to lead like Jesus? What vision of the future urges you to keep going? What goal are you working toward? Jesus’ goal was to bring life; for this, He was willing to give His life. What are you giving your life for?

“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.”—John   10:10-11

Prayer: Jesus, thank You for desiring life for us, and for giving Your life, living and dying, to make Your vision for us a reality. May we give ourselves to carrying on Your vision. This we pray in Your name, amen.
